Swinley Forest meeting 8 March 2022


A believed all time record of 46  players (26 Old Tauntonians and 20 guests) played in 2022 at Swinley Forest Golf Club on the usual second Tuesday of March. This annual fixture has been running for some 70 years at the legendary very beautiful members club in Berkshire.

It is believed to have originated because an Old Tauntonian, who lived in Ascot, became an elected  member of Swinley and asked the Secretary whether he minded having a few of his old school chums to a guest day at the Club early in the Season in March.

Numbers were about 30 several years ago, and sometimes below, but have now steadily increased in recent years.

The morning singles was won by an Old Tauntonian with Richard Willacy scoring 36 points beating Iain Westwater by one point.

The afternoon greensomes pairs competition was won by Neil Robertson and his guest with 41 points.
